Francine (Gidget) is desperate: her parents want to force her to come with them on vacation to Hawaii - just during the two weeks when her beloved "Moondoggie" is home from College. When he suggests she go for it, she's even more in panic - doesn't he care to be with her? So she sets out for Hawaii in the worst mood. On the plane she meets the sociable Abby, who gives her the advice to forget about Jeff - and regrets it shortly after, when Francine follows the advice and steals her boyfriend Eddie, a famous dancer. But then Jeff discovers he's missing Francine...

Did You Know?
Gidget's striped blouse at the breakfast table in California and Abby's striped dress at the Luau are the same fabric pattern. Abby wears that same striped dress when they go to see Eddie at the Moana, and then the next night at the Luau. See more
In an early scene, Jeff gives Gidget his fraternity pin. We know this is in "real time" because when her parents spring the Hawaiian trip on her Gidget complains she's only just been pinned. But Jeff pinned her at the end of Gidget (1959). Further confusing the matter, we soon see the whole getting pinned scene reprised shortly thereafter as one of the flashbacks Gidget confides to Abby on the airplane. See more
